That is clearly not going to be a good question for the BEAT team .

I will take a shot based upon 2 hypotheticals .

1. If Haslett is in control of all personel manuevers and might be under the hot seat next year , I would guess not so good .Haslett seems endeared to Brooks .

2. There is the potential of a new personel guy joining the front office in New Orleans to handle the player selections , so if he is not thrilled with Brooks and Benson see\'s this as the mega money aquisition it could be , then maybe . Certainly Eli would add interest from the Mississippi region with both Duece and Eli playing for the Saints , getting Eli could give the majority of interest in the gulf coast south to the Saints .

Everything 08 posts is based on hypotheticals.

How many consecutive sellouts since Brooks became the starter?

Careful now. The Eli crowd will realize you are right and they will come up with a \"
new stadium\" deal that would only happen if Eli is drafted by the Saints.

Hypotheticals?

How many fewer tickets might they sell if the Saints signed Eli? Not many.

How many more jerseys and other merchandise might they sell with a Manning back in black and gold? TONS!

Do the Saints make more money from ticket sales (which all go to a centeral pot and then are redistributed by league) or by merchandising, which they get royalties from directly?

Maybe you should stick to talking about how Manning might effect the team\'s performance, b/c I think you guys might be mistaken about how he could effect business.

I wonder what would happen to the Brooks-a-philes if Brooks were to come out with some sort of Cory Dillon-esque, \"I\'m sick of being here, trade me to Dallas.\" sort of outburst?
